Explore Greensand Country

Greensand Country is the perfect place to explore, whether it’s a short walk or drive from your house, a day out from Milton Keynes, Bedford, Luton or London, or a longer holiday.

The patchwork of the Greensand Country means you can visit a grand stately home in the morning, find a picturesque village pub or town centre cafe for lunch, then burn off some energy on a bike ride in the afternoon.

Two long distance footpaths, the Greensand Ridge Walk and the John Bunyan Trail, cross the Greensand County. There’s also a wide network of criss-crossing footpaths, cycleways and bridleways if you want a shorter stroll. We’re also developing three geology trails, three historic parkland walks, new bridleways and a new walking route along the Flit Valley all for you to discover.

If you’re looking for somewhere to stretch your legs or have a day out then try one of our Walks of the Week– a whole range of walks across the Greensand Country from short strolls under a mile to longer distance trails.

We’ll be adding new ideas for walks, bike rides and days out to this website as we go so please check back regularly. If you have a favourite walk that you would like to to feature on the website or as part of our new trail then email team@greensandcountry.com

We’d also looking to share information about local cafes, pubs, B&Bs, hotels, visitor attractions and other sites, so if you run a business in the area and would like to become part of the Greensand Country website then we’d love to hear from you!
